Nice place, food is very good. Service and ambiance all good. Lots of brunch choices; you won’t go hungry. Maybe a little pricey but not surprising for the location. The birds are a bit of a issue, not unlike a lot of outdoor venues.

Food was great. Service not so much. Waited 20 minutes to give our order. Food arrived quickly after that. Asked for a glass of water and that was forgotten and had to ask again.

The service was SUPERB, food delicious, ambiance special. This was our 38th Anniversary celebration & Stonegrill’s staff, Lindsay in particular made it even more special.

we had breakfast and 1 dinner here during our stay. breakfast is very good and the a la cart pricing is reasonable-and there are many options.
dinner was also very good and a range of options and pricing is available. if you are on site then yes-eat here.

We were at the hotel for a conference and chose to eat here for lunch on two occasions. Both times we had great service and the food was good. We sat on the outside patio which was really nice although it can get hot if you aren't under an umbrella.

I love that their policy seems to leave a carafe of your beverage on the table so you don't have to wait for a refill during a busy time.

The first time we had the chips and guacomole/salsa to start. The guac was really fresh and tasty. For lunch I had a quesadilla which was also quite good and not too giant. The second day I had a chopped salad with chicken. Again, it wasn't a huge portion - perfect amount for lunch.

I would recommend this restaurant, especially sitting outside on a not too hot day. It looked like there was a nice bar inside but we didn't venture in to check it out.

We sat outside and enjoyed the salmon dinner. Service was fast and attentive and the ambiance was beautiful as we had great weather and a full moon behind the tall palm trees.

Overall, great place. We had breakfast and dinner there and enjoyed the food very much. Our dinner server was great, but we didn't feel we got the same attention for breakfast, but I wouldn't say it was bad. We'd recommend it!

It is more a a lunch place or very casual family dinner. I would stick to the sandwiches and salads and maybe not the more pricey plates. I ordered the salmon and was disappointed in it.

How can you mess up a chicken ceasar salad??? You have to park a distance to get to Stonegrill unless you valet.

I made a reservation at Stonegrill on OpenTable, but when I arrived I was told I could not be seated because I was not part of a convention that was going on at the Marriott Desert Ridge. This came after I was contacted by the restaurant to ensure I would be keeping the reservation and I confirmed I would. If there are restrictions on dining, a restaurant should not take reservations on line. There really is no excuse for this action that embarrassed me in front of my guests.

We had such an amazing time here! We were celebrating our honeymoon and everybody was so welcoming. They started off our evening with a champagne toast and our server was wonderful, so attentive and kind. The manager stopped by a few times to make sure we were having a nice evening as well. Dinner was fantastic, I had the NY Strip and my husband has the scallops, we both basically licked our plates clean. They brought us a complimentary dessert platter as well that was so delicious. 10/10 would recommend.

Wonderful service by Rebekah. Food was great - much better than usually found in resort restaurants. We chose Stonegrill because of a great gluten free menu that one diner needed, but the entire group loved their meals.

We were having dinner with friends celebrating Fourth of July and trying to have a conversation. A group next to us were coming and going and getting louder all the time - impossible to carry on a conversation without having to try to yell. We paid our bill and left. Will probably not be back for a long time.

Amazing food and outstanding service! We were quite early for our reservation but the ladies usher us to our table immediately. Jessica greeted us right away. We ordered our drinks and the calamari which even our four year old enjoyed. The short ribs and pork pibil were beautifully presented and tenders. The coconut flan and expresso cake were excellent. Thank you all for such a wonderful and memorable evening!

Food was good and service was excellent. I wish I could remember my server's name. She was so sweet and full of positive vibes and remembered my name every time I came in for a meal. She is a treasure and Stonegrill is luck to have her.

I would recommend this restaurant to a friend only if they were having the buffet. They just do not seem good at menu orders at this time of day. I have eaten at this restaurant multiple times for breakfast. Each time I have ordered off the menu and every time my food has been cold and not prepared as requested and it is as simple as eggs.

The pollo milanesa was ok, a little too much breading. The cochinita pipil was saltier than it should have been, although the meat was very tender, it was a 2 out of 10 for flavor due to the saltiness.

We were here for multiple breakfast and a dinner and were pleased with all. I will start with breakfast- lovely outside setting and across from an open grassy area that the kids can run and throw the football around in. I loved the salmon tartine ( pretty and flavorful), egg white omelet and French toast were also great and good portion sizes. The Greek yogurt with agave and pear was an added bonus.

Dinner was outstanding. Again sat outside under the white lights and near the fire pits. We started with the queso dip off the appetizer menu and the jalapeño cheddar biscuits which were provided to all - we loved both. Then I ate the short ribs which were amazing and such a large portion I couldn’t finish it. My son had the cochinita Pible which was so flavorful and tender. My husband had the bison burger with fries ( loved the fries. The bison burger was ok but no where near as amazing as the other two entrees). No room for dessert. Definitely would recommend!
